A fluffy ginger cat found his forever home at a local farm in West Virginia. The family was delighted when the kitty started caring for the animals at the farm and even helped a goat through her labor. Now this incredible feline is looking after the kids and guarding their home.
Meet Pretty Boy!
When Pretty Boy came to the farm, he strutted about in his new home as if he owned it.
"Operation Fancy Free (Jackson Co, West Virginia) had him vetted as part of our TNR program (if you look, you can see his ear tip). The family that owns the farm absolutely adore him and he is well cared for," Laura of Operation Fancy Free told Love Meow.
When Copper the goat was pregnant and needed to be confined for her labor, Pretty Boy stayed by her side and even started massaging her belly to help her ease the discomfort.
"All the females are pregnant and there are many. Mostly he didn't interact with them...," Kat the neighbor told Love Meow. "With Copper confined, I noticed that Pretty Boy was spending a lot of time in her stall, laying near her, rubbing up against her, sitting on the rail as if watching over her. I was amused by it all."
Pretty Boy displayed what they called a Goat Midwife manner as he kneaded on Copper's pregnant belly before she went into labor.
After the babies were born, Pretty Boy snuggled up to Copper to comfort the mama.
He welcomed the three kids into the farm and offered to babysit them while keeping mama Copper company.
